US Mumbai attacks plotter given 35 years in prison

A US man has been sentenced to 35 years in prison for his key role in plotting the deadly Mumbai attacks in 2008.

David Coleman Headley, 52, was sentenced on 12 counts, including conspiracy to aid militants from the Pakistani group Lashkar-e Taiba who carried out the attacks.

Headley pleaded guilty and cooperated to avoid the death penalty and extradition to India.

More than 160 people were killed by gunmen during the assault.
